A number of members have asked us about the area cleared in the woods next to Harlow Moor Road.
We have had no prior warning of any works and seeking confirmation on full details from Harrogate Council. We know from North Yorkshire County Council that works are taking place to improve footpaths and add a pedestrian island as part of the recent Miller Homes development.
We will keep all updated here and also via our Facebook and Twitter feeds.
We are pleased to confirm that The Pinewoods Conservation Group is one of the charities being supported by the Harrogate District Local Lotto. With over 60% of tickets sales going to local causes and a top prize of £25,000 this is a great way to support us.

With massive thanks to Open Country the path from the War Memorial to Harlow Moor Road has been resurfaced. Works took the best part of 3 days but the result are very impressive with new gravel being added and compacted.
We will review the need for any additional works after the winter.
As part of planned repairs the middle path from the War Memorial to Harlow Moor Road will be closed from Tue 7th Aug to Fri 10th Aug. This will allow for areas of the path to be cleared and any major holes filled with chipped stone. This work is urgently needed and best done in dry weather that we fortunately have had recently. This will mean that the Woodland Fairy Door Walk will become more if a linear walk for these 4 days but should be back open for this weekend.
